My experiences with José Luis are somewhat dated at this point (it was over
a year ago that I worked with him on sponsorship for bug #405704), but at
that time, the packages he submitted to me for sponsorship were not ready
for upload without revision.  Of course, people can learn, and I expect
anyone in the NM queue to be doing so, but there should be positive evidence
given by his recent sponsors about the quality of his newer work, because
his older work was not yet of the quality that it should be for unsupervised
package uploads.
